ADSS part of NT contamination fight

The Asbestos Disease Support Society¬†is involved in a small Northern Territory community’s quest for justice after their exposure, including their children, to significant amounts of asbestos. Their problems started eight years after the Tennant Creek Indigenous community bought the building with a Government grant. Unfortunately, it was never properly used and fell into disrepair. It became a playground for local children. Now it has been discovered the building is full of broken, exposed and damaged asbestos. This is how the ABC is reporting Julalikari People’s plight.
